A Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer was injured in a crash north of uptown Charlotte Friday.

The wreck happened just before 10 a.m. on N. Graham Street near Keswick Avenue. Officials said Officer Michael J. Homan was leaving the courthouse on a police motorcycle and heading north on Graham when a woman, identified as 27-year-old Lamonda Nicole Sloan, attempted to turn left from Kenswick onto Graham.

A tractor-trailer parked on the side of the road prevented Sloan from seeing the officer coming, investigators said. When she turned onto Graham, Officer Homan struck the left side of her car and was thrown from his motorcycle.

Officer Homan was taken to the hospital and was in surgery as of 11 a.m. There is no word on the extent of his injuries but officials said he is expected to be OK.

Sloan was arrested at the scene and charged with driving while license revoked, fictitious registration plate, no liability insurance, failure to yield right-of-way, and unsafe movement.

CMPD said N. Graham was closed between Plymouth Avenue and Wolfberry Street while crews worked at the scene.

Sloan and the driver of the tractor-trailer were not injured.
